State of Florida Approves Vaccinations for Cruise Ship Crew
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Surgeon General of Florida have approved vaccinations for people who are in Florida, providing goods or services for the benefit of residents or visitors of the state. As a result, on Friday, Port Canaveral began administering vaccinations for port workers and crew members. "We have been working closely with our cruise partners, the Florida Department of Health, and our port community to come up with a plan and timeline of vaccinating cruise ship crews that could begin the process for a safe return to cruising," Port CEO Capt. John Murray said. "This expanded eligibility is significantly important for our cruise tourism business, and we're proud of our efforts to help get this industry up and running."
